years ago because this project that we're doing was greatly energy jisz with the prospective of high speed rail. that prospect has been severely diminished. i think we have to do this to replace that energy although i think high speed rail is coming it may not come for 25 years that's the reality. the only way to proceed with our project is to somehow do something like that with this holistic thinking that can replace that kind of energy so i think not so much, you know, trying to preserve what we're doing but to incorporate. i think this is necessary for us. this is the kind of, you know, if you want to think in terms of you know of p-3 stuff and what - hydrahow are we going to be able to do phase 2 nothing rivals this with presenting a ponlt for being able to do that that has to be looked at holistically and i wish i luck and certainly that you can ranger for a clean blackboard and is we if we can't agree on what could happen and it's easy to bring up the politics we can't do this because of those people and those people don't like it. let's see if we can agree that on a plan of wh

issues. this is the energy department's largest clean up anywhere in the united states. trying to take those 56 million-gallons of radioactive sludge that were in underground tanks. they are trying to turn that into solid glass. it is a massive project. how does this work? >> well the 17 self-tanks are distributed over quite a few square miles with an intricate net of pumps and pipes. when it is pumped to facility that i was previously supporting, we would then treat that waste chemically to get some of the more dangerous constituents out of it and then after we had treated it chemically we would put it into a melter with glass heat it up to high temperatures. >> the tanks that were underground were beginning to leak. they were old and the danger was some of them were fairly close to the colombia river and there is fear that somehow some of that radioactive material could get into the river. >> it is a fear based on reality. the single shell tanks which were actually decommissioned in the 40s and 50s, those tanks are known to have been leaking into the environment for years. we have co

the energy and the spirit of it, okay? good. (chavez) when we learn the piece, we have to make sure we have the right fingering and dynamics, and we have to definitely make sure we have the rhythm. otherwise, it could come out any way you want it to. crescendo means you get louder, and decrescendo means you get softer. if you have dynamics, it changes in mood, and when people are about say, "oh, this is so nice." all a sudden it jumps up or something.
